Yesterday concluded the first Idea Mapping Workshop in the entire Middle East. This event was organized by Forward Training and Consulting LLC. It was one of the most inspiring groups I have ever had the privilege to teach in 18 years of doing this work. Workshop success was so exceptional that we have already scheduled the next training for May 9-10, 2010 in Amman. I’ll let you know when registration is open, but if you feel you must get on the waitlist now you can call +(962-6) 4611277 or email
